„Angels for Children“-Foundation assures vocational training for outstanding students of Lao schools (Vientiane, November 5th, 2015)
On November 5th Ambassador Michael Grau received a delegation comprising Mr. Christian Engel, Chairman of the Board of “Angels for Children”-Foundation in Bavaria/Germany. The Foundation has been supporting two primary schools and one secondary in Ban Sikeud and Ban Phang Heng, Naxaythong District with equipment, nutrition and extra curricular activities to pave the way for successful personal and professional development of students. Recently, the foundation started equipping the secondary school in Ban Phang Heng with new laboratories to facilitate a smooth entry to the Lao-German Technical College (Vientiane), thus widening career perspectives and offering interesting alternatives to academic studies which in a business and technology oriented world are not the only or sometimes not even the best way to professional success. Another member of the delegation was Prof.Dr. Isabel Martin from the Educational University of Karlsruhe (Germany) who came with volunteers from her university to start a teach-the-teacher education program to improve didactical and speaking skills of the English teachers.
